Ruthwell Cross

ruthwell cross, Dr Henry Duncan was minister of the parish church in Ruthwell for nearly 50 years. He became Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, as well as a leading light in the Disruption of 1843.

He restored the magnificent Ruthwell Cross, which is arguably the most discussed medieval monument in western europe.

The late seventh or early eighth century Ruthwell Cross is one of the finest Anglo-Saxon crosses in Britain and has now been restored to its rightful place in Ruthwell Church.

Information on the cross and its origins is available in the museum.
